Blunt Lecture For Democrats
I don’t agree with everything in this column, but these words needed to be said.
If the polls are even remotely accurate, most Americans want to get rid of the corrupt inept powercrazed Republicans in Congress this November. But what’s the alternative?
This current Republican party is the most crooked, stench-coated bunch of assholes in our country’s history. The Democrats, on the other hand, are…uh…well, not quite as bad. They don’t suck quite as much. How’s that for a winning slogan?
Imagine running in a race where your only competitor has a broken back and two broken legs — and you still lose. Or losing a spelling bee to someone who thinks the word “is” is spelled I-Z.
That’s the embarrassing situation the Democrats will be in if they can’t take back Congress this November. And the rest of us will be in a world of shit for two more years.
As Michael Hirsh says: “What do you do when an entire party needs therapy…They resemble nothing so much as ill-adjusted adolescents, afraid of their own shadows…What are they afraid of? Themselves, essentially.”
He also says “They are all afflicted with varying degrees of megalophobia, a fear of assuming power.”
Regarding the Democrats’ constant need to be Bush Lite, trying to out-hawk Bush on Iraq, he says “If you have to say you’re tough, you’re not.” In other words, if you voted for the Iraqi invasion before you voted against it — you’re toast.
He says this about John Kerry: “How else can one explain the inexplicable — the spectacle of a Silver Star winner made to look wimpy by two men who avoided combat? Simple: He was terrified of speaking out.”
He also says: “But here is a message to those few Democrats who retain their self-confidence and sanity (I’m not sure who you are, but there must be some): Come back from the shadows. If you can look past your fears, America’s entire national-security apparatus is out there making your case for you.”
Here’s hoping the Democratic “leadership” sees Hirsh’s column and learns something from it. They may just be the party that doesn’t suck quite as much, but they’re our only hope in November.
